When his apartment building is torn down, a retired lifelong New Yorker goes on a cross country odyssey with his beloved cat Tonto.
The blue car Harry buys is a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. The $250 he pays for it would equate to $1,330 in 2018.
There were trolleys, Tonto. Cobblestones. The aroma of corned beef and cabbage. The tangy zest of... apple strudel. You had to hand-crank the cars in those days, Tonto. Cars like REO's, Franklins, Hudsons. Those were names fit for a car. These days ...
When Harry's son first arrives with a trailer to pick up the dispossessed Harry and his furniture his light green Chevelle has a sunroof. In subsequent scenes the car is identical except the sunroof has magically disappeared.
Tonto is billed "and TONTO"
In the original theatrical version, Norman (Josh Mostel) says to Shirley (Ellen Burstyn), "I like you too, Aunt Shirley, but you're a c**t." When the ratings board gave the film an R rating because of this line, Mazursky changed the line to "But you're a bitch." All subsequent prints after the initial theatrical release contain this line, and the original has since disappeared.
